While waiting for the highway bus to take me from Naha to the northern part of the island, where the aquarium is, I noticed this woman and her wonderful sashiko jacket. I commented on how beautiful it was, and we ended up sitting together on the bus, talking about stitching. I showed her some pictures on my gadget and she showed me her bag and some pouches inside that she had made. When the bus stopped for a rest break, she got off but I stayed in my seat. When she returned, she surprised me with a cup of coffee for each of us. How kind! I thoroughly enjoyed my two hour visit with her. Stitching - a universal language.
